5/17/11: The Origins of Yoga
By Doug Fabrizio
Salt Lake City, Utah – Monday, we're exploring the origins of yoga with the scholar Mark Singleton. He's written a book that challenges the idea that the yoga practiced by millions of people today is born of an ancient Indian religious tradition. Singleton argues instead for what he calls "transnational" yoga - the idea that the practice has been heavily influenced by differing world views and the needs of a modern audience. Singleton joins Doug to separate the myth of yoga from its 20th century origins.
